Full Face protection Covid Shield

My name is Luv Rajpal. I hail from a village named Gaurimafi. I am studying in IX standard at Maa Anandmayee Memorial School. I was introduced to innovations and their positive effects through my Atal Tinkering Lab. I have been participating in various innovation festivals conducted at my school.

My Innovative Idea helps us in the fight COVID-19 better. My innovation is the creation of a 2 in 1 Face Shield plus Mask. My model can be worn to completely cover the mouth and face of a person. As you all know COVID19 virus causes harm when it enters once inside. We wear a mask to protect us and others from COVID-19, but most of the time we miss the eyes. COVID-19 virus can enter through our eyes also. There are Personal Protection Equipment which is available, but they are very expensive. I have come up with a simple design that can give a person the benefit of a mask and a face shield at a fraction of the cost. The design is an extension of the existing mask design. A thick transparent OHP sheet or half-sheet of the project file is used as the transparent shield which then gets fixed to the cloth mask by sewing. I think this project has enormous potential. I want to being this product to the market and see how well it is received.


I have deployed my project prototype in my community. I have shared my prototype with my friends and family members and presented my project in front of our ATL Mentor, Mr Paremvir Malik. The project was reviewed, and I have also implemented upgrades to it. My project has also received the Inspire Manak Award worth 10,000 which I am utilizing to making further upgrades and automated.

My lesson has been that good innovation can come when one is observant and compassionate towards the problems around oneself. I also understood the importance of sharing my project with others and getting feedback. This has helped to get the grant from the Government of India. I have used materials available at home to make my initial prototype. I sought support from my ATL In Charge Mr Arjun Madhavankutty. He helped me to take my project to next level. Now I am working to make it even better. Collaboration and seeking support are important for making innovations.
